When is a taco not a taco? What does the Icelandic chef say? (video)


This Seafood Taco in a Nordic Style LOOKS LIKE A TACO but except for the fish, there is not one ingredient you’d see in a taco in your neighborhood. The “tortilla” is made from rye flour, the “skyr sauce” is some kind of Icelandic yogurt, and the fennel and watercress are not your abuelita’s pico de gallo. All in all, it might be delish. But is it a taco? Discuss. [EDITOR’s NOTE: Canadians have craftily rebranded “rapeseed oil.” We North Americans call it “Canola” eh.]

Goldie Han Solo, 4, eulogized at tearful funeral: ‘She always smiled’

(PNS reporting from PALOS VERDES, CA) Beloved aquatic family member Goldie Han Solo was remembered for her cheerful demeanor and active lifestyle at a tearful funeral ceremony in the Solo family’s back yard here Tuesday.

Goldie, believed to be four years old (photo), apparently died of asphyxiation and/or dehydration after she leaped from her fishbowl Monday night around 11:37 PM. That’s when a small earthquake (3.5 Richter) shook this suburban Los Angeles community, according to the U.S. Geological Service.

Her teeny, shiny body was discovered on the floor of Reyna Solo’s bedroom at 7 AM Tuesday by family member Gilda Solis-Chihuahua Solo, who awakened 8-year-old Reyna with loud whimpering and assertive licking. Reyna and Gilda, a Canine-American, had both slept through the temblor; Goldie, not so much.

Reyna attempted mouth-to-mouth resuscitation but Goldie was already stiff and dry, swimming in that fish pond in the sky.

Small-town Oaxaca mayor marries crocodile princess for fish (video)


Brides can often get a bit snappy on their big day – and one Mexican crocodile is no exception. She’s marrying the mayor of a Pacific coast fishing town in a traditional ceremony.

The fishermen of the town of San Pedro Huamelula, Oaxaca, believe the crocodile is a princess, and a wedding ritual will bring plenty of fish for them to catch along the Pacific coast. And then there’s the part when the mayor talks about the parade of “morenos” bearing croc statues.
